On the program are three works conducted by rising star Nicolas Ellis: The Hebrides by Mendelssohn, a work composed by the tireless traveler during a visit to Fingal’s Cave in Scotland; The Tempest by Tchaikovsky, a symphonic poem after Shakespeare, at once majestic and peaceful; and Beethoven’s sumptuous “Pastoral” Symphony. Join us for an evening of dreams in beautiful Saint-Sauveur.
